Update on my Facebook Ad Grrrr Story

Industry Observer

Recently, I posted a blog about Facebook rejecting one of my ads because it contained more than 20% of text. After contacting them, they reviewed and let it go through.

Original Blog Post: Starting the morning with Grrrrr....

Well, thank you Facebook. It is thus far my most active ad with many reach, likes, shares and interactions. However, I promise less text on the next one.


It appears, puppies help to spread the message. I think next time I will create an ad with me and the pups. I realized that I will have to add my contact info and a short message. People don't like to read a long message. I also have to have a call to action button with a link to my website.

If nothing else, my ad got noticed.

If you know anyone who would like to relocate to the Reno, NV area, your referral would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

That is a great photo and saying. No doubt about it, cute dogs sell things! :) I do think it would be a good idea to be in the photo with the dogs so prospective clients can "see" you.
